Conduit Crumbling...

Hi, I have a 2007 LT 2.2L I noticed that the harness loom/conduit running across the top rear of the engine has deteriorated to the point it is crumbling. Most likely due to the heat from the exhaust manifold. The wires are pretty exposed and I want to protect them from the heat. Most aftermarket loom isnt good for much more than 200F, Has anybody else run into this and what did you do?

Thanks
Max

My 07 did the exact same, last year I replaced the loom but haven't looked at it since. I'll check it in spring when I change the plugs.

basically any wire loom conduit will do the same thing. you could try the black cloth tape

Given the location I'm thinking garden variety loom (most stuff out there is rated to 195F) isnt a good idea. Nylon loom (harder to find) will go 300F. Tape concerns me for the same reason. I want to protect the wiring but I dont want the "protection" to melt.

Coby7: any problems with melting?
